March 2017 Newsletter
It’s March and we’ve already closed six sessions! The weather may not be able to decide what it’s going to do but our campers are making it clear that Cub Creek Science Camp is still the place to be this summer! If you haven’t registered your camper, now is the time to do it!

MARCH STAFF OF THE MONTH
Marco Reynolds is our March staff of the month. Marco has been coming to Cub Creek for years! He started as a camper, became an ASIT, summer staff counselor, an Animal intern presently, and this summer will be one of our camp photographers! His favorite animals are Meeko and Cricket, our adorable Marmosets. Marco's favorite camp song is Flea and he loves opening campfire! The number one item on his bucket list is to go to the Australia zoo. He wants to be a high school biology teacher someday as well as a cheer and dance coach. Marco always has a smile on his face and Cub Creek (and your campers!) are so lucky to have him!
NEWS FROM THE ANIMAL AREA
This month the Animal Care Staff visited the Reptile show in St Louis. We had a great time talking with other herp lovers and picking their brains for tips for our scaly friends. We also brought home some new faces. We have a new female Mali Uromastyx, who we haven’t found the perfect name for just yet. We also added an African Clawed Frog named Gimli, a new albino Honduran Milksnake named Sunfire, and some Dubia or Royal Roaches for the Creepy Crawly room.
Another new face has been added to the Animal Area. We have a new baby porcupine! He or she was born just a few days ago. Both mom and baby are healthy and doing great!
FUN fact: African Clawed Frogs are widely popular pets around the world because they were the first form of a pregnancy test. HCG, a hormone produced by a pregnant woman, would cause a female frog to lay eggs.
